Vicky Losada insists that the squad need to maintain their belief.

Skipper Vicky Losada is confident Albion will respond positively to last week's FA Cup exit when they take on one of the WSL title chasers on Sunday. 

Albion lost 4-0 to Manchester United and face another tough test at the Broadfield Stadium against Manchester City. 

Reflecting on the United game she said, “I think it was a tough one to take last Saturday and still on Sunday when you are trying to digest the game. We watched the game again and identified the things that didn't go right, we discussed the situations of the game.

"We are in a process, we're trying to play a unique style that is not easy. But we have to respond. We have to take the lessons from the Manchester United game into this Sunday."

Harris and Losada's Man City press conference

"I think we are having really good moments in the game but it’s about being more consistent and managing some moments of the game. We’ve also had a few injuries but, hopefully, we are getting the numbers back. We need everyone in this boat, and we just need to keep working - this is football.

“I’ve been in this process already and it took us five, six years with Barcelona. I'm so happy to be part of Brighton’s process now. It’s all about belief and working every day, having the right people around you.

"We know Manchester City very well and we took all points last time in Manchester so, I know they're going to come with plenty of energy on Sunday."

Albion sealed three points against Gareth Taylor's side in November with a 1-0 victory on the road, and Losada knows it will be a tough match against one of the title contenders.

“I think they've also been in a process (Manchester City); I was part of that for two years. The difference I see now is that they are more consistent.

"I think they are contenders to win the league and I think they have big players, and their standards are really high. So, even if it seems like they're not in the game if they have one chance, they're going to score."
